Publications included Bioperfectus Chlamydia Trachomatis Real Time PCR Kit


Chlamydia is a common STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) that can cause infection among men and women, leading to permanent damage to women’s reproductive system, making it difficult or impossible to get pregnant later. Even in the face of a pandemic, STD detection remains significant in public, and annual screening is recommended by CDC.

Section of STD/AIDS Control and Prevention, Jiangsu Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Nanjing, China, published their research on the High prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis infection among women attending STD and gynecology clinics in Jiangsu province, China (A cross-sectional survey). The paper was published on Nov 19, 2021, in the Medicine (IF: 1.889).

The study collected cervical swabs from STD and gynecology clinics throughout Jiangsu province from 2018 to 2019. A total of 2664 female participants with urinary or genital tract symptoms, aged 18 to 60, were enrolled. It aimed to discover the factors which significantly affect CT infection rate.

441 participants (16.6%) tested positive for CT infection via Bioperfectus reagents in this cross-sectional survey. A significant correlation existed between CT infection and sub-district, occupations, and clinics. At the same time, there was no significant difference between age groups.

Differences in the prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) infection between subgroups of 4 main variables

Through univariate and multivariate analysis, female outpatients from STD clinics (19.4%) and South Jiangsu (18.5%) were higher. Female outpatients who were service personnel (21.3%) or farmers (17.6%), lived in South Jiangsu (18.5%), and were from STD clinics (19.4%) were more potential to be infected with CT.
